Oy, this story... this one was a long time coming due to general
disinterest. Not because of the story itself, but because of the
contents within and that I'd have to redraw them. That's right, I'm
talking about none other than... a Pokemon Battle. If you recall Royally Screwed(that's the Nidoqueen debut story with the Dream Land Tourney), I
stalled a bit between updates for that one, too. Thing is, I hate
drawing Pokemon battles. I don't even like Pokemon battles in the games,
and they're mildly amusing in the anime, especially knowing I wasn't
the unfortunate soul who had to animate them. Pokemon are so much more
fun to draw when they're just living life.
Additionally, I'm not keen on drawing Pokemon I don't feel like drawing just for the sake of variety and story, especially when they're large and have too many parts. It was easier the first time around because I could get away with drawing by memory, and only two of us ever really saw the comic so who cared about being way off model? These days? Not so much and there's no excuse with image searches. Ugh. This story alone took years to complete, but the light at the end of the tunnel is that this is the last Pokemon battle in the entire collection, and eventually I powered through it. If it's any consolation, some of the art here is pretty neat.
